My last post was December 2010.  I posted a Christmas card with an old photo of my husband and I.  It is one of my favorite images of us from our engagement session in 2009.  Not only do we look great together, but I was actually having a good hair day and I was pretty skinny.  This simple post brought back a lot of memories.

haley and jacob are getting married on july 23 in altus, ar at st. mary’s.  it is going to be breathtaking, i’m sure.  if you’re not familiar with the church, it is on a mountain top in the middle of wine country.

haley wanted to wait until the spring for their engagement session, but she wanted to go ahead and do a mini shoot for save the date cards.  love this idea!  we went to downtown fort smith and explored the area by the park at west end.

i have known dovie since high school, so i was thrilled when she asked me to take her maternity and newborn photos. i can’t wait to meet the little one!  she decided she wanted to do all of her photos in the studio at downtown fort smith, ar.  i just love the look of a simple black background with all the emphasis on the belly.

this one is my favorite.  she looks radiant!
